A few do that at local race series around me. Lots of items are handy at the track, many common replacement parts ans other parts that could be used somewhat often. Some stuff might include, race fuel, stands, air filters, oils, tear offs, levers, shifters, bolt kits ect. Maybe even something like an umbrella as well. Handy on sunny days.

It's all been listed pretty much.
Doing tire or tube changes is huge, if you're quick at it and good at it, there is money to be made there... I CAN do it, but if its going to cost me $20 for someone to do it in 10 minutes without pinching my new tube and I can make it to the next moto I'll fork out $20.

Levers, grips, tear offs, basic fluids, fasteners, pre-oiled air filters (no-toil did this I think) etc. Spark plugs.

There is always the person that packs a bit too light for the day, or those of us that are always prepared that forgot to pack that one part that broke that day.

I've seen a few different people give this a go, and even though they always seem to be busy it's hard for them to stay open, but, up here they pay out the nose to get stuff across the border with exchange rates etc, and I hear bad things about the big distributor companies in Canada not making it easy for small businesses to get started.

The tire machine is huge. My local shop owner told me that before any of the big events/races in our area, there’s a HUGE amount of people needing tires done. He had to raise the price, and even started turning people away. Even said that he hired a teenage kid to help for a month, because they were falling behind on their other service work.

I’d imagine a tire machine at the track would do great ONLY if you were fast and efficient at it. I’ve seen to many days ended short because of a flat or tire related problems.

Nobody ever told me, I found out for myself. You've got to believe in foolish miracles. It's not how you play the game, it's if you win or lose. You can choose. Don't confuse. Win or lose. It's up to you!
